Cairns is famous for their great seafood. The nice view of ocean and the fresh seafood, this is how people in Cairns spend their relaxing time.
There are many great places for that in Cairns, but the one where locals often go is The Raw Prawn.
It offers meat and pasta as well as seafood at the affordable price.
It is open seven days for lunch and dinner and highly recommended especially for lunch.
The Casual and Cozy Vibes

The Raw Prawn is located on the Cairns esplanade, which allow you to overlook the shining waters of Trinity Inlet.
They have table both of inside and outside. Inside is more chic with cozy sofas and black tables. If you would like to enjoy the view of ocean and sea breezes, outside is recommend. But please note that flies is everywhere in Australia.
Both are very laid back atmosphere and let you enjoy nice conversations and foods.
The Recommended Entrée
For the Entrée, please do not miss the chowder. The soup has a very deep taste and you can enjoy seafood broth.
If you prefer to have seafood itself, Chilled Prawns is recommended. It is served with cocktail sauce, lemon, and very refreshing taste. Especially on a hot day, it will promote your appetite.
The Extensive Menu
You have wide options at The Raw Prawn. A lot of fresh seafood such as prawn, scallops, crab… and the seafood platter lets you have all seafood they have.
The seafood is cooked in many ways and you can enjoy different taste.
If you would like to try something different, how about kangaroo, emu and crocodile? They are common to eat in Australia. Especially the emu is peculiar and The Raw Prawn serves it as a sausage.
Menu has codes showing Vegetarian, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, and other specific dietary requirements are taken care of as well.
The Lunch Specials
The Lunch Specials are very affordable and which is the reason many people visit The Raw Prawn for lunch. You may opt for any combination from Entrée Main or Dessert at $25.50.
For the Entrée, the chowder I introduced above or Prawn & Avocado Salad will be a good choice.
For the Main, the menu has seafood and meat but most locals enjoy a pasta. It is a big potion and Pasta Marinara with prawns is fantastic.
The Lunch Specials include glass of wine or tap beer. Nothing would be better than enjoying nice drinks with the view of ocean and cozy sea breezes.
